The Denver Foundation

The mission of The Denver Foundation is to inspire people and mobilize resources to strengthen our community. Since 1925, The Denver Foundation has helped generous people like you to be catalysts for good by building charitable legacies. As Colorado's oldest and largest community foundation, we help people give back to Metro Denver in ways that are meaningful -- to them and to the community. The Denver Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.

Our mission is advancing the health and well-being of the people of Colorado. Our vision is that all Coloradans have fair and equal opportunities to lead healthy, productive lives regardless of race, ethnicity, income or where we live.

Enterprise Community Partners

We believe opportunity begins when people have a safe, healthy and affordable place to call home. It grows with access to good schools, jobs, transit and health care.

 

Enterprise’s mission is to create opportunity for low- and moderate-income people through affordable housing in diverse, thriving communities.

Comal: Heritage Food Incubator

Comal Kitchen is a heritage food incubator in partnership with Focus Points, a non-profit that serves families in the Globeville and Elyira-Swansea neighborhoods. Its goal is to provide skills in culinary arts and business to a cohort of women- many originating from Mexico, El Salvador, and Syria - to maintain and celebrate their traditions through entrepreneurial ventures.

City of Denver

North Denver Cornerstone Collaborative

 

In early 2013, Mayor Michael B. Hancock recognized the need to align all of the efforts in Globeville, Elyria and Swansea under one coordinated vision as part of creating a world class city. The resulting North Denver Cornerstone Collaborative (NDCC) is a coordinated effort to ensure integrated planning and deliberate connections among the converging projects that are taking place. 

Denver's Office of Strategic Partnerships

The Denver Office of Strategic Partnerships(DOSP) was created in 2004 by then-Mayor John Hickenlooper and founding director, Mike Roque. Part of a burgeoning national movement, DOSP’s purpose was to serve as an intentional bridge between the City of Denver and the nonprofit sector. While the Office has offered a number of different programs since its founding, the core belief that by working collectively, the public and nonprofit sectors can be more efficient and effective in strengthening Denver’s communities has remained. 

The Denver Office of Strategic Partnerships focuses on building individual skills and tools in nonprofit and City agency staff to encourage creation of cross-sector partnerships, continuing and expanding the active facilitation of City-nonprofit collaborative efforts, and helping to connect the two sectors to leverage government grant and real estate resources in new ways.
